    So I was buying ram for my next build (2 x4GB sticks DDR3 1600 high profile) and didn't consider the cpu cooler in worst case scenario I can buy another cooler but I just need to know if they will fit

    The stock cooler generally doesn't block the RAM slots, the board would have been designed with the slots placed far enough away to fit the stock cooler.

    For some larger coolers it matters what motherboard you use since the position of the slots can vary.
